Traffic Safety/Seguridadde tráfico    

Traffic Map/Mapa de tráfico

 Dear Parents,

I would like to enlist your continuing support in our ongoing efforts at making John Gill the safest, healthiest, happiest place on earth!

Traffic Safety- Our main safety issue at John Gill School is the morning and afternoon drop-off by parents. Even though we have staff at all times monitoring traffic many parents do not follow the rules and laws that are posted. Some parents argue with staff, treat other parents, and other drivers, badly in their efforts to drop off or pick up their kids. We need to set a good example by exhibiting patience and good manners. Our children will act the way we act!

Please follow all of the posted traffic signs, and practice good driving habits. Our children are always watching. It would be tragic if any child were to be injured, or worse, as a result of our carelessness.

Thank you all very much for your help in keeping our school and community safe and healthy for all! 

Your partner in education,

Josh Griffith, Principal 

Estimados Padres,

Me gustaria enforzar su continuidad en el  apoyo al seguro esfuerzo en hacer la escuela John Gill la más segura,saludable y la más feliz de toda la tierra!

Seguridad de tráfico- Nuestro punto  principal de seguridad  en John Gill School es en la mañana y en las tardes cuando los padres dejan y recogen a sus hijos. Aunque tengamos personal todo el tiempo monitoriando el tráfico, muchos padres de familia no siguen las reglas y las leyes que estan escritos en los  letreros que están a las entradas de la escuela. Algunos padres discuten con el personal, amenazan a otros padres y algunas otras personas hacen mal esfueerzo en dejar y recoger sus hijos. Necesitamos dar un buen ejemplo  exibiendo paciencia  y buenos modales.Nuestros niños actuan del modo que nosotros actuamos!

Por favor siga los letreros de tráfico que están colocados alrededor, y practique  sus buenos hábitos de manejar.Nuestros niños siempre están mirando. Sería muy trágico si algun niño fuera lastimado ó algo peor pasara como resultado de nuestros descuidos.

Muchas gracias por ayudar a mantener nuestra escuela y comunidad segura y saludable para todos!!!

Su compañero en educación,

Josh Griffith, Director
